, entrepreneurial group of business men and women, scientists, educators and workers on the planet. companies like silicon energy in marysville are leading the world with some of the most durable solar cells ever built. janicki industries in sedro- wooley is driving innovation in aerospace. valve, a software company in bellevue has grown into a worldwide leader in interactive entertainment. and in grays harbor an across- the-board effort led to the re- opening of the paper mill last year, putting 175 people back to work making 100% recycled paper. i had this to say about washington. innovation is in our genes. [applause] we create. we invent. we build. so now we must go forward, with both high ambition and a recognition that the power of innovation will fuel the next wave of job growth in washington. make no mistake, our top priority today, tomorrow, and every day for the next four years, is jobs. we must build a working washington, capable of sustained economic leadership in a rapidly changing world. my plan focuses on job growth in seven industry clusters. aerospace, life sciences, military, agr
sentence. >> that is a concept -- anyway, legislation will be critical. part of our job is to educate congress on what is going on out there. educate the public. we say cyber and everybody's eyes glaze over. i can see it. nonetheless, the call is here. we need to deal with this urgently and imminently because attacks are coming all the time from different sources and take different forms. they are increasing in seriousness and sophistication. >> you mentioned civilian space. there is defense space, the government space than dot com and dot org. that is the civilian space and the overwhelming majority of space. a lot of our temperature is operated by the private sector -- a lot of our infrastructure is operated by the private sector. homeland has jurisdiction uniquely where the pentagon does not. or the nro doesn't over this civilian space. homeland have to be a major player. yet many in the private sector have been saying that homeland does not have the competence to do this job well. do you agree with that? >> no. [laughter] >> that is what is called a delay -- leading cancer. -- tha
's about education, about research and development, it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. and we can't just do one piece of it, and we can't let that piece prevent us or become a smoke screen for not acting on the others. so that is the challenge. how do you put that puzzle together, move forward in a balanced way, so we're funding those kinds of priorities that we need to grow? >> it's interesting, doris, as you look at the historical sweep as well. here is a very toxic atmosphere in washington. a carryover of, you know, difficult debates. and the president who's popular, has a unified party, but also seems reluctant to go out on a limb on some big areas where he thinks he's not going to get much cooperation from republicans. >> i'm not sure that's true. i think gun control. he came out with sweeping proposals. i mean, that's certainly out on a limb. you're not going to get a lot of support perhaps from republicans. but his idea, i think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to you, he mentioned lincoln's quote.
concerned about, people are concerned about health care costs and education costs. and to a lesser extent, when economic growth is stronger as it was later in the bush years maybe they're concerned about issues related to the bottom and so. education and health care and sort of the broader challenge of globalization, those things loom incredibly large and the republican imagination and those are not issues republicans like to talk about. this is where compassion conservatism didn't emerge any backing to emerge in the late 1990s from a period when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington for four, six years. and the whole point of bush's him was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. that's something to say about health care. you can go back and said, i think justifiably, that something like the prescription drugs bill was too big, cost too much, should've bee been paid fn someone been paid for and so wanted you to make similar critiques with no child left behind by the republican party will never get back to the wilderness if it ju
that we protect children, but we also need to extend that obviously to higher education. what chris said was well-said which is that campuses should be a place where a student like the one on that phone call should be able to go and study english and not worry about having to dive under her desk or, you know, behind corners of the building to avoid getting injured seriously. so, you know, i'm on the education and workforce committee. we actually just met this afternoon. the chairman of the committee, mr. klein from minnesota, a republican, made a pledge that we are going to be holding hearings on school violence, and, you know, i'm trying to be an optimist that, you know, the president's words yesterday, the willingness in the house to actually have these issues brought up for consideration, are going to produce some real results that will make this a safer country. >> because this is a public health problem, isn't it? i mean, gun violence is, you know, no less significant in its impact than public health issues like obesity in this country. i mean, this is just out of control, isn't it?
how we can better use those resources not only to support public endeavors like education and public safety and roads, but also of money that could be pumped into the private sector. >> david, if you have another question or comment, we are almost at the end of our time. but we can squeeze one -- ok. i think we have not at all exhausted this topic. we may have exhausted our panelists and some of you. we will return to its. this has been -- at least for a poor country lawyer, a very enlightening discussion of the economic issues. we've not done too much with the politics. i suppose there might be a smidgen of that in some of the decisions that get made over the next month's. let me take this occasion to thank you for a plethora of wonderful questions and for hanging in there in a very difficult topic. think our friends at the commonwealth fund for not only provided us -- thank our friends at the commonwealth fund for not only providing us this topic, but great direction in shaping this program. i would like you to think -- join me in thanking our panel for a terrific discussion. [appl
is in the planning stage but not approved by pentagon, the white house or niger. chicago educators learne learnee hard way. be absolutely sure about the length you send in e-mail to parents. plus, the tale of two marches and how they were covered or not covered in the media. the grapevine is next. >> bret: fox news alert. senate passed $51 billion relief bill for victims of super storm sandy. the measure passed the house two weeks ago. critics were unhappy there were no off-setting spending cuts. supporters have been pushing relief bill for weeks. the final bill vote 62-36. now -- ♪ ♪ >> bret: after that music, fresh pickings from the political grapevine. zero. that is the amount of time given to coverage of the hundreds of thousands strong marm for life. marking the 40th anniversary of the roe v. wade decision by cbs and abc evening news show friday. stories that did make the cut, hillary clinton's glasses. and the subway foot-long sub that is only 11 inches long. however, both networks did cover the other march in d.c., the pro-gun control event saturday which cbs said numbered close to 1,0
of education, research and development, innovation energy. there are things we can do about it but we have to do them together as a country. that's our goal. >> i do think it's important to put in context and remember just how dark the days were four years ago and how in the middle of that meltdown, people were thinking about going to caves and getting spam and guns. it was dark. not only the president, but the president working with george w. bush and others really pitched in and had to make very tough decisions and a lot of hard votes that got a lot of people unelected from office to get us through that. >> when we got our first economic briefings, i wanted to get some spam and go into a cave. i know what you're talking about. >> that's why this is such an opportunity, though, for the president right now. the problems we're talking about are structural. they've been there for a long time. this declining middle class has gone on for two decades. it isn't just the recession. that means investing. this is where the problem of the debt comes in. if you're going to get bet
talked about the government that we won which is infrastructure, education, regulation and the good things and recognize the government can't solve all the problems, i thought that was a reaching out, if you will, a shout to the tea party right that's rejectionist. >> as we saw in pennsylvania, and professional that morning there's so much of this willingness to win the election by the republicans, they know they're headed into trouble. many like lebanon, take the fences down. okay, we're never going to be popular again so we're going to have to rig it. >> sean: so it's the gettysburg address, obama. republicans are going to have to steal elections. that's how bad nbc's gotten, that's the coverage. >> a couple of points about this quote, unquote news network and this quote, unquote newsman. on the gettysburg address, chris mathews has it it exactly wrong. he has the opposite. the gettysburg address was an attempt at healing of nation' wounds at the end of the civil war. obama's speech yesterday was a left wing declaration of war against the movement. and it was opposite. after the r
, cutting educational programs. that's the one that balances in 2040. so what do you think a budget that balances in ten years from now is going to look like compared to that? obviously much worse. we're talking about cuts of up to 37% in government services as he know them, and, remember, you can't get a penny for these budgets from revenue. it all has to come from spending cuts, and the number i just cited takes social security, medicare, and defense off the table as they've stated. so we're talking about far deeper cuts than the ryan budget that you and i have bemoaned many a time here. >> so we're talking, okay, jared, about a 37% across the board cut. >> right. >> now, what was it about last year's election results that have led paul ryan to believe that he wasn't brutal enough the first time with the economy? >> exactly. this is the classical doubling down that i got to say at this point i am just -- maybe i should stop, but i'm just scratching my head over this. the election decisively was over this very argument about the role of government in people's lives. i actually thou
to try to educate our youth about the responsibility of using a firearm, the dangers of using a firearm? >> yeah. in a true way, to educate young people about both the responsibility and the true dangers, that's not a bad thing. what is a bad thing is blatantly marketing these guns to young people. basically it exposes the true colors of the gun lobby. they're not concerned in the gun industry. they're not concerned about the prevention of gun violence. they're just concerned about selling more guns. the rest of the american public wants to engage in a meaningful conversation about exactly what you're saying. what we can do respectful of the second amendment right to own guns, respectful of the fact that hunting and target shooting and protection are deeply ingrained notions. and, you know, in a lot of our country. but have that conversation simultaneous to the risks associated with having guns in the home and what we can do to prevent tragedies. >> sure. the tragedy that is most fresh on everyone's mind, newtown. right now there's a hearing under way in connecticut about stopping gun v
by a mob. then, talked about the government we won, which is infrom a structure, education, regulation, then recognize government can't solve all of the problems. i thought that is reaching out, to the tea party right rejectionists. >> we saw in pennsylvania there is so much of the willingness to rig the election. they know they're heading into trouble and it's almost like lebanon. you know? and when i see them doing it, we're never going to be popular again so, we're going to have to rig it so gettysburg address, obama. republicans are going to have to steal elections? that is how bad nbc has gotten that. is their coverage. >> a couple points about this quote, unquote news network. on the gettysburg address, chris matthews has it exactly wrong. just the opposite. gettiesberg address was an attempt at healing the nation's wounds at the end of the civil war. obama's speech, yesterday, was a left wing declaration of war against conservative movement. so it was the opposite. as for the rigging charge this is classic msnbc. going back to 2004 with keith onerman refusing to concede ohio goi
to action. 26 beautiful people, 20 wonderful babies and courageous teachers and educators would be alive today. >> are you where we thought we would be in this country with regards to the public debate that is going on right now since newtown, connecticut? >> the public debate on gun violence prevention has always been fraught with controversy. and i am encouraged by many of my colleagues who have been staunch opponents of any measures in the past who say we really need to do something about the guns. and that is the -- >> did you think that by now -- 20 first graders killed, six teachers killed and there was this tremendous mood in this country. a lot of people talked about wanting to do something. and now it seems as if once again the devil's in the details and the political will has subsided. one point to make very clearly is there rights to possess firearms. the second amendment has been reaffirmed to provide for a right to possess firearms. on marketing and promotion, gun ownership and responsible shooting and hunting ought to be encouraged and promoted. and nothing i say about prom
will do it in health care, education and energy. think about that. health care is one sixth of the economy. energy, you control the production and the pricing and control everything from he tried to with capt. trade and he tried. education is the future. you control those three elements and you have what lenin would call the commanding height of a post industrial society. that is what he said he wanted to do. in fact, you don't remember this because, unlike me, you have real lives for it you don't have to watch everything the man says. i do for my sins and they clearly are mending. [laughter] but he sprinkled that speech and the subsequent speeches until the georgetown speech with a phrase -- the new foundation, which was never picked up on and never remembered. but it was in there. in fact, the name of the speech was called "the new foundation." he already saw himself one month into the presidency as a successor to the new deal and the new frontier. he wanted this appellation, the new foundation, to be what obama is and would be. so it shows you how ideologically ambitious he was from day
and pay higher wages and improving education and job training so that more people can get the skills that businesses are looking for. it means reforming our immigration system and keeping our children safe from the menace of gun violence. and it means bringing down our deficit in a balanced way by making necessary reforms and asking every american to pay their fair share. >> meanwhile, republicans stressing their agenda today as well. cutting spending. >> our nation's total debt is now larger than our entire economy. this means that every man, woman and child owes a $53,000 share of this debt. that level of spending is unsustainable. a major credit rating agency has already downgraded our nation's credit once. and if we don't start making some real progress on spending reforms, more downgrades are likely in the near future. >> about eight minutes past the hour now. live look this is happening in washington, d.c. as we speak. this is happening really across the country. one of the main ones, this is a rally for gun control taking place in washington, d.c. people there are rallying for
. ♪ >>> this morning we come together to hear about the president's plans to strengthen education. >> today's flashback takes us back to 1998 at an event that started out pretty much like any other white house news conference, but it turned out to be anything but normal. when president clinton made a statement about his new education initiative and then on his own launched into one of the most infamous presidential lines ever uttered. >> i have to go back to work on my state of the union speech and i worked on it pretty late last night, but i want to say one thing to the american people. i want you to listen to me. i'm going to say this again. i did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss lewinsky. i never told anybody to lie, nota single time, ever. these allegations are false, and i need to go back to work for the american people. thank you. >> you almost forgot the conviction with which he said it. the next night clinton went to capitol hill to deliver that state of the union address with no mention whatsoever of the sex scandal that was consuming his presidency. it would take until december
's a hard story to cover. the president has to be an educate on climate issue. by giving it the form, not a paragraph, he's gone a long way to start the second term discussion on climate we need. >> we can't judge how historians are going to see this. i suspect on many issues, they'll see it as forward thinking. that doesn't take away from the fact it probably will be seen as the next couple years as a partisan speech. i think they best test how partisan the speech is, is not what republicans say on it, what democrats running for re-election on the senate two years from now say on the speech and what democrats say in swing districts about the speech. i don't know you're going to get a lot of these democrats running in conservative states where the president got below 45%, and there are quite a few, in 2014, are going to be talking about gay rights, climate change and gun control. rober robert. >> look. every district is unique and different, as you well know and as we know, as we looking through the map. i think the speech, talking, as doug said about seneca falls and stonewall and s
. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are changing, how the philosophy of young people is changing, i the they understand that when you're talking about this 47%, the takers, it's veterans and people who paid the medicare and realize it's workers that aren't making much money, that are making $11, $12 an hour. if republicans don't listen, they pay a price in elections. that's why i'm of the miptimist we can reach an agreement on these really important proposals. >> do you think that republicans are getting that the country has changed, the demographics has changed, 195
the president had the courage to put it in there. he has to start being an educator. that's just one of a number of things he did very well in that speech. now jonathan, bill o'reiley, last night, say something that was different. let me play it. >> why are so many americans accepting president obama's vision when less than 30 years ago, president reagan was the political icon? the struggle in america is not between republicans and democrats, it's between us, we the people. you either want freedom or you don't. >> us. we the people. want freedom or we don't. how is what president obama's talking about, social justice and equal pay for women and rights for gays and lesbians. how is this not wanting freedom? i don't understand? that's why i called it different. and the fact that 30 years ago, we saw reagan as an icon means 30 years later that we can't say that we think what the president is saying today is just as important as what people felt about ronald reagan 30 years ago? help me with this, jonathan? >> well, i wish i could get into the mind of bill o'riley and figure out which people is he t
economic crises. we've got to deal with global warming. we've got to deal with education. we have to deal with deficit reduction. we are not going to be able to do what the american people want if we have to get 60 votes. and as a result of that agreement, we're going to continue to have to get 60 votes. and that's why i voted against it. >> isn't mr. mcconnell showing it's going to be the same attitude? he beat the liberals. >> no, i think it will. look, here is what has happened. historically, there was a gentleman's agreement in the senate, and that is that you will not use the filibuster requiring 60 votes unless it was something really you felt very passionately about. when lyndon johnson was majority leader, he had to use cloture on one occasion. since obama has been president, reid has had to use it hundreds of times. in other words, the republicans have changed the rules. any significant piece of legislation now requires 60 votes. you can't govern effectively under those conditions. what we should have said, if you want to oppose something, go to the floor. talk and talk and talk.
of us. they work across the aisle when possible and expand opportunity through education reform. i cannot wait to see what they can accomplish this year. when you take stock of all of this, it might seem you right now, but it will grow. as the president implement his agenda, it won't be pretty. at that moment, we will be ready. we will offer an alternative vision. we will explain how our vision differs and how it rests on vibrant communities and increases upward mobility. we will show how we can govern better by governing closer to the people and strengthening families and their livelihoods. we will make it clear that we have better ideas to combat poverty. our policies will list everyone in this country. we will translate that vision into a governing agenda. that is how you offer enduring solutions. we will say to the country, here is our plan for the country, for the budget, for healthcare, for energy, defense. when we do that, we put our plans out against the president 's results, i think we will compare quite favorably. we will win back the trust of the american people and put
for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use the filibuster, use government shutdown, use the debt ceiling, use sequestration, any monkey wrench they can th
or whatever, there's got to be some level of education and information and responsibility. not just of the individuals who are engaging, but if they're young or teenagers. parents who are involved to make sure that their children understand completely what this very adult activity involves, and the reality of it is a lot of folks -- and this is a concern for members of faith traditions, et cetera, we put this stuff out there, and then there's, you know, okay, kids, you've got it. now we need to complete the rest of it. >> it's all about strengthening the american family as well. before we go, i have to ask you guys, if there is one -- what is your take on what the president moves forward on first, which is to say a lot of things were outlined yesterday. is it climate change? is it immigration? is it -- >> immigration and guns. i think you're going to see real movement on immigration in the next two weeks, and i think they want to get the gun thing done quickly. >> michael. >> i don't know if the gun thing will be done this year, depending on how the house republicans move, but i thi
no more illegal abortion, no more coat hanger abortion. we've got to reach out and educate a younger generation. second, that younger generation really knows how to use social media. i don't. i don't have a facebook. i don't have a twitter. we've got to get more of them involved because they're really better at organizing a younger group than those of us who are somewhat old are. i think the other thing is bringing back in women of my generation who do remember what it was like. part of the case started because women who were graduate students at the university of texas were upset because at the university of texas health center you could not get contraception unless you certified you were within six weeks of marriage, so there were a lot of unplanned pregnancies, and then they were asking information about where could they go for abortion, and these women who were doing counseling were trying to tell them where -- illegal places, but keep them out of the bad illegal places. it's why the medical community has always been so supportive of abortion being legal. >> sarah, thank you very
the number one choice for first entering the higher education system and then many students will choose to go in to a four-year college based upon if i might say their finances. that's why these systems are important. they have an academic program but they have a technological program and one of the programs they have deals with first responders, police and fire and others so this k5campus is one their campuses and a while back, not only having academic but they have vocational and opened up a beauty and barber and kind of system where people of that -- who want this kind of profession can be engaged. but it's a regular campus with students walking with books, backpacks, bicycles. it is a place for learning and i'm so sad, saddened this has happened. with respect to the gang violence, again, representations, leadership is hearing the same thing. but they have no final police conclusion or report that indicates to them what the reason or what the results or cause of this particular incident, except guns were fired more than one shot was fired and people have been injured. >> and congresswoman,
donated $100 million to newark schools said he admired christie's leadership on education and reform. not happy with the endorsement and is calling on zuckerberg to cancel the event. >> absurd. >> "the birmingham news," the question that i know sam stein and all of his connecticut friends are asking this morning, how did legendary alabama coach bear bryant get his signature houndstooth hat? well, butch valdone was his friend. he says he picked it out to match his jacket and the coach started wearing it with anything. butch said bear was hopeless when it came to fashion and he even labeled his clothes so the coach could figure out which articles went with which. >> how did that make its way into the morning reads, that piece? i don't know. >> because joe has the same issue. >> i have the same issue. everything is numbered here. you think i just threw this sweater on? >> no, it's too good. >> come on. >> a lot of thought went into that. >> exactly. >> things like that just don't happen. >> numbers. >> there's a mathematical formula behind this beauty. >> there is. don't say that math c
of organizing and even in the white house getting out there almost like a campaign and educating the american people on really telling them what we're trying to do, not talking away the rights of someone to own a gun. this past week we had several hearings, and we had gun owners. we had hunters. we had sportsmen. they agreed we don't need the large magazines -- we don't need the assault weapons, and i think most nra members, the polls show that they believe something has to be done and they stick with us an awful lot. basically we're dealing with the nra that is trying to scare the members of congress. that's been for years. many of them have said to me they would love to vote where me, but they don't want to lose their election with b it. we have to show them the american people will stand behind them, their constituents will stand behind them. >> good luck with the march today. democrats link first in the filibuster fight. the politico briefing next right here on "andrea mitchell reports." twins. i didn't see them coming. i have obligations. cute obligations, but obligations. i need to reth
enemies are fragmented everywhere and it requires very well-educated people and i think the next big thing is in my view is universal service. we're not going to be able to defend the country of ten million people and we're an extremely small force and i don't care what the technology. i believe in universal service. >> a la israel or -- >> oh, yeah. it's going to require some logistical changes and it will require a great deal of leadership, but if you have a situation where you have more people in new york city than you had at pearl harbor and you have an all-volunteer force you're outsourcing our defense for a small number of brave young men and women. that's the next big equal opportunity. >> that's fascinating. kayla, very quickly. you're a published author now and an outspoken advocate. i've got to ask you, political future. are you thinking of running for something, maybe? perhaps? >> you know, i'm not sure that the people are that interested in electing a woman with tattoos, but i am both happy to continue serving our country in as many ways as we can. >> we've learn more about you
on every inch of the southern border. >> if you say that we should not educate children, i don't think you have a heart. >> well, i support the arizona law. >> what you need to do is attack their benefits. >> it would have electrified barbed wire at the top. >> we need to end the practice of anchor babies in the united states. >> and yes, mr. president, it would have alligators in it. >> we are losing! >> we are losing. >>> we begin with all eyes on the border, and what could be the first big legislative action and fight of 2013. just a week after the president's second term inauguration, a consensus over immigration has developed at an unusual speed. the president is due to roll out his own immigration overhaul tuesday in las vegas, but this afternoon a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the framework for a major reform bill, including a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. >> we still have a long way to go, but this bipartisan blueprint is a major break through. >> we cannot continue as a nation with 11 million people residing in the shadows. and we have to addres
